How many times do you say you are going to clean house in your life ? But when it comes down to it a lot gets sweep-ed under the rug. You decided every year you are going to stop doing the wrong things and start doing the right ones. You are going to stop complaining and start doing something about it.
Out with the Old , In with the New
I pick the topic of friendships at this time . That is what I have been dealing with a lot lately. I have come to a crossroads in my life . Do I continue to complain about the friendships I have or do I change something about them. So I am choosing to do something about the friendships. I have decided to end them. It is time in my life to let go of people who have been in my life out of habit. The ones who have been just there because I am used to it that way. I am letting go of those who don’t challenge me to be a better human. I am letting go of those that are my friend because of need . The friendships that are draining to me.
With all of those friendships gone, I have created the space in my life for people who challenge me to be a better human. I am excited about it. I am surrounding myself with like minded people who are achieving goals and dreams in their life . I have made a goal for myself to only surround myself with people moving forward. I will never look back again.
He makes me smile
On a day when I am filled with sorrow my son shines light in my eyes. He reminds how good it is to see old friends . He is almost 7 and he is wise beyond his years.
I have seen so many faces from my past this week. Some I wanted to see and some I can careless about.
Some old wounds have been reopened. I am hoping that they can be fixed.
I grew up with a large group of friends. We always considered each other family. Family and good friends know how to pick up where they left off. I have reconnected with some great friends. I intend to hold up my end on keeping the friendship alive!
Don’t be afraid to help someone open their eyes to reality. People walk around and let life live them everyday. Not until someone opens their eyes to reality do they see what their life has become. For some the path they followed isn’t the best choice in life . Most people are afraid to cross the line and show them the light.
Don’t Be Afraid to Be Someones Hero.
Be a Friend ... Be a Hero
You crossing the line can save a life. I listen to people say they are a good friend . To me a good friend doesn’t help their friends in making mistakes in their lives. They are the ones to steer there friend in the right direction. They are the ones that risk the friendship in crossing the line.
For me I’d rather loose the friendship in trying to save a life .They can end the friendship because I crossed the line, but deep down they know I did it out of friendship. The truth hurts especially when you have denied it for so long.
Showing people the truth in life has it’s consequences. I as a friend am always willing to take that risk , Are you?
can you step out of your box to save a friend?
I have been married for 9 years this past May. It hasn’t always been a a walk in the park. When my husband and I said “I do”… we took that to heart. We had decided that no matter what we will do everything it takes to have a successful marriage. So about 4 years into out marriage we decided we are going to need some extra support in having a strong marriage. The “extra help” had given us some tools to use. I was able to pull together the
Top 10 Ways To Keep Your Marriage Strong
- Stay honest.
- Speak your mind when you are thinking it. If you wait to long your spouse might not understand where you are coming from.
- Be truthful, sometimes brutal honesty is the only type of honesty. The truth hurts, so it isn’t always easy.
- Stay friends- don’t forget why you got married to begin with.
- Spend quality time together. Go on a date once a week.
- Laugh together.
- Sit down every few months and re-evaluate your life goals. Make sure you are always on the same page. Support each others goals and dreams.
- Don’t compare your marriage to any other. Every relationship is different.
- Have sex regularly. That leaves no room for fighting over that!
- Be in love … Not just have love for each other.
We had caught slack for having a strong marriage. I had heard to many times that we all can’t be perfect like Dana & Chris. Well folks… perfect we are not. Truly committed ….we are.
Committed to each other. We knew we had to try everything before we walk away from a marriage that we put all of ourselves into. We also had 2 children that would be damaged for life if we didn’t at least try.
So here we are 5 years later and stronger than ever. Do we fight?…. I wouldn’t call it fighting anymore. It is more like debates. I couldn’t imagine at this point in my life wanting to share it with anybody else but Chris. We share the same goals in life. We both want a life of abundance. We support each other in all our dreams. We are powerful as a team. We are successful because we want to be!
